STEEL PRICES RISE:
The carbon steel market is poised to grow by 699.35 MT during 2020-2024 progressing at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period." (Source: Business Wire)
This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Eterra Skid Steer Motorized 3-Point Adapter
The Eterra 3-Point Adapter is uniquely designed to run motorized agricultural attachments. In this particular case, it is for skid steer loaders with Standard (Low) Flow features. It can be used on skid steer loaders with an auxiliary hydraulic output of 10 – 25 GPM @ 3,000 PSI. At maximum flow and pressure you can expect 15 -31 HP from this adaptor and see premium results. Category 0, 1 and 2 agricultural attachments are compatible with this adapter, and hooking them up is quick and easy. This 3-point skid steer quick attach adapter features a quick hitch design that allows you to attach while in your cab.

The Eterra design has made sure that these adaptors account for safety, strength and longevity. Why Safety? Because pushing a working attachment on your skid steer loader means the attachment can come back at you if it is not secured by a spring-loaded locking mechanism. Why Strength? Because it was made with strong materials that feature the best possible design. That means the adjustable arm can use a Category 0, 1 or 2 agricultural attachment without a loss of power. This is part of the design and material used to make sure that all attachments work on your loader with no hassles. Why Longevity? The adjustable motor swivel makes sure that the PTO shaft isn’t kinked. A kinked PTO shaft means a loss of horsepower and with older models of skid steer loaders, there isn't a lot of horsepower to start with.
A bypass check valve is included to protect your attachments from damage, which is a crucial element to any 3 point adapter. Having a check valve ensures that the hydraulic oil can flow freely in the motor and spin down slowly. If there is no check valve in place, the motor will come to an abrupt stop when the machine hydraulics are turned off, causing immense pressure in the motor that can blow the seal. While this does limit the rotation to one direction only, it is a must have when running a 3-point attachment off of a skid steer.
Note: If your Skid Steer/CTL door swings open upon entry or exit, there may be some obstruction created by the 3-point adapter and implement. Please chat with us if you have any questions.
